All in the Family

Recently my cousin, a hooker, uh, I mean crocheter decided to start knitting as well. So I passed along some books, needles and yarn to feed her new found habit. I had already introduced her to my own version of crack, ravelry, and she just got her invite. May the time sucking begin! Hopefully she will enjoy knitting as much as I do and I can't wait to see what she does! Knowing our family it will involve stuffed animals.

Last month I showed off the completed Elephant Sweater and I did say that I would post pictures when I finally gave Michelle her sweater so without further ado....

New Sweater

And because I am the world's biggest goofball I decided that since every little girl who loves elephants needs an elephant sweater then surely every elephant who loves a little girl needs a Michelle sweater. This is Soggy, Michelle's favorite stuffie, the beginning of her love of elephants and a very snazzy dresser. Funny thing is the Soggy sweater which I made in one night was just as big a hit as Michelle's sweater that I worked many, many hours on. Such is life.

Michelle is such a sweetie pie! It looks like the sweater is going to fit her perfectly. ;)

A Michelle sweater... I'm schvitzing! (Okay I've got blue eyes and was baptized UCC, I really can't pull that off, can I... and actually, doesn't that mean sweating? Oh god I'm just making it worse. Sorry)

I saw this in the J Crew catalog and thought of you:

Your elephant sweater is far, far cuter.

That elephant sweater is pure genius! (the one the elephant is wearing that is..although the one Michelle is wearing is quite cute too!)

I hope your handiwork is appreciated. I know how hard you worked, and the sweater really does look awesome. I haven't knit for someone else for over a year. You're a very good aunt!
